Sunday nicely aligned with the last AM in Kyoto (evening flight). Time to re-instate the LR 3 weeks after Canberra.
At 6:15am I headed NW through quiet suburbia for 6km at 5:00s. Eventually, I was wandering the greens of a golf course that straddles the hills in NW Kyoto. Enjoyed 7 of 18 holes and departed before the grounds keepers became suspicious that I was not a member.
Stage 2 was a south direction at 4:40s back through side-streets. Minor traffic dodging, a few dead ends and several identical shrines later it was time to head east as the watch hit 20km. Continued past Nijo Castle, then via the main shopping district until I hit the Kamo river. Rounded out 30km on the west bank just as the legs started to tire.
Great run all round. 30km in 4:40s. Tomorrow is either a short easy run or full rest day. Lingering soreness in both feet from a pretty solid week of running.
Ninna-ji templte (half way point).
A quick run-through the temple itself.
